There are tons of updated traditionals in Lake Highlands, some of them are 1950s ranches that have seen a mix of hodge-podge renovations over the decades.
It’s a hot neighborhood, mostly because it’s inside the Dallas city limits but has Richardson ISD schools. Therefore, buyers are looking for family homes that are move-in ready, won’t need anything more than a paint job here and there, and are easy to maintain.
I think 9451 Viewside hits all of those points, and at a just reduced $365,000, it’s a pretty good deal for an almost-3,000-square-foot home. This house is totally traditional, with chandeliers and wood paneling, dark paint on the walls, and some interesting faux finishes on the kitchen cabinets. Of course, these finish selections make the house look a lot smaller than the three-bedroom, three-bath home actually is.
There are stainless appliances in the kitchen, which features a commercial gas cooktop and three ovens. While there isn’t an island, there’s definitely room for one. I’d recommend putting one in when you reface the cabinets. That is, if you’re up to the job.
The master suite is decent-sized, with a tray ceiling and moulding. The master bath is fresh and sleek, and has French doors that access the backyard and pool area. It’s the gigantic closet in the master suite that will have you swooning, though. There’s room enough to share with your spouse if you’re feeling generous!
The pool, which is just off the covered patio, has a spa and a modest garden surrounding it. Of course, the lots are a tidge small in Lake Highlands, but there are a lot of great family homes and excellent schools.
